A method for determining a signal transmission mode of a plurality of fault indicators includes a data retrieval step, a mode setting step, a number setting step, an analysis step, a first determination step, a calculation step, a second determination step and a mode number increasing step. Based on the above step, the method is able to determine a preferred number of times the fault signals are required to be transmitted between the plurality of fault indicators when a predetermined transmission success rate is met, reducing the energy consumption and prolonging the service life of the indicators.

A power converting device includes a filter filtering an AC input voltage to generate a filtered voltage, a power factor corrector boosting the filtered voltage to generate a boosted voltage, and a step-down converter reducing the boosted voltage to generate a DC output voltage. The power factor corrector includes a capacitor, an inductor, two diodes and two switches. The inductor has a first terminal coupled to the filter, and a second terminal. The diodes are coupled in series across the capacitor. A common node between the diodes is coupled to the second terminal of the inductor. The switches are coupled in series across the capacitor. A voltage across one of the switches serves as the boosted voltage.
